The diagnosis of cancer brings with it a host of psychological as well as physical challenges. Interactive imagery can help patients restore their sense of control when their coping abilities are both most needed and most challenged. In this presentation we will review at least four evidence-based techniques that can help restore a patient's coping and decision-making abilities, stimulate their immunity and help them reduce the adverse effects of surgery, chemotherapy and other cancer treatments.
